    Police say a 12-year-old boy lied about an attempted abduction in Nashua, New Hampshire.

    The child claimed that a man tried to kidnap him on May 22, grabbing him by the wrist and forcibly walking him down the street.

    According to police, the boy made up the story so that he would not get in trouble for getting home late.

    Police will not criminally charge the boy, but they say he has been counseled.
